First PC was a Tandy 1000 SL hand-me-down from my grandpa...in 1995. First Windows experience was Windows 3.1 on my mother's work laptop.

First actual Windows PC was a Dell Dimension 4300 running Windows ME (I think it was 2000 or 2001), which eventually got upgraded to XP. As you can imagine with the shit quality of the old dells, it did not last long (Few years).

First PC built was a:
-512 of RAM
-AMD Athlon 3000+
-Crappy case that had a door that broke because cheap chinese shit.

And a bunch of reused parts from a couple old builds (I know the HDD and the DVD drive were from another PC). Built it originally to play Half Life 2.

Actually you just reminded me, it originally came with just 256mb of SDRAM.

By the time XP SP2 came out in 2004 it was starting to struggle as programs demanded more and more memory, so I went ahead and ordered a 1GB kit off of crucial.

Did you ever have any capacitor problems with that motherboard?

XP was like Vista at first in the sense that everyone saw it as a resource hog whilst trying to run it on underpowered hardware. Machines with 64mb of ram were run of the mill a few years prior.

Luckily the hardware caught up with in a few years.

Some beige box.

Specs as I remember them:

CPU: 66 MHz (turbo) / 33 MHz
RAM: 8 MB or 16 MB
HDD: 70 MB or 300 MB
OS: Windows 3.11

It also came with a CD-ROM drive and two floppy drives (3.5" and 5.25"). Games still do say what type of install media they come with, but I remember back then, games or any other kind of CD would have "CD-ROM" written in a starburst, almost like it was a selling point on the box.

I got some free CDs with atlases, a virtual tour of the San Diego zoo, Mavis Beacon teaches typing, and Chessmaster 4000 (the latter of which I still have copied on my computer somewhere). I also had a CD called IE (Interactive Entertainment) which had interviews with some game developers, reviews, and a few shareware games, but I don't remember if I got that with my computer or if I got it later.

>> No.50513842

jesus, first one was a 486-dx2-80 with some sort of vesa graphics card i paid for with a check, that they never cashed.

two or three months later pentium hit the market and I had already blown 600 on that piece of dung.

Mechwarrior could only be played in wireframe because the card still couldnt handle it.
